The drama surrounding the next DAREDEVIL movie continues to get deeper and more pungent as word is getting out that Fox has rejected Joe Carnahan’s pitch of a hardcore, 70′s style adaptation. This is crazy to me considering that it will now be nearly impossible for them to get a movie into production by the October 10th deadline, meaning that Marvel is all-but assured to get the rights to the character back.
I’m guessing that Fox has finally realized that it’s just Daredevil; no big loss.
But anyway, just to give you an idea of what Carnahan was going to be shooting for, he showed off two sizzle reels for his DAREDEVIL on his Twitter feed. Remember now, these are just sizzle reels, not trailers. They are just a conglomeration of stock footage and scenes from other movies cobbled together to give you an idea of tone. With that said, enjoy!
This is the PG-13 version:
And this is the more “adult” version:
You know, I probably would have watched that movie. Hopefully, the first time that Daredevil makes an appearance, some pimp yells “WOOO Jim! That is a bad outfit!” At which point Daredevil throws a blind-man cane into his larynx.
